In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s highly anticipated decision on marriage equality which will be announced sometime this month, join us for a lunchtime rally for LGBTQ equality. Date: The announcement could happen between June 22 to 30, however, experts are predicting June 25, June 26 or June 29, because big decisions are typically announced on the last SCOTUS decisions days. We are planning for a lunchtime rally at Terry Schrunk Plaza. A confirmation email will be sent that morning to folks on our list. No matter the outcome, join us on Decision Day (whichever day that will be!) to mark this historic event and get the latest on what's next for LGBTQ equality in Oregon. Because: We're not done! RSVP: http://bit.ly/1HUWxtV Stay tuned for more details!

Race, Faith, and Justice will take place at Warner Pacific College 2219 SE 68th Ave, Portland, OR 97215in McGuire Auditorium on Monday, June 29th at 7pm to 9pm. Featuring keynote speaker Rev. Sekou (activist, public theologian, author from Ferguson) and a panel discussion from: - Rev. Sekou (Fellowship of Reconciliation and Scholar in Residence at the Martin Luther King Papers Project at Stanford University - Dr. Daymond Glenn (Warner Pacific College) - JoAnn Hardesty (Portland NAACP) - Eric Knox (Imago Dei Community) This free event, held at Warner Pacific College, will bring Rev. Osagyefo Sekou to speak about his experiences in Ferguson and Baltimore. Rev. Sekou was arrested multiple times, supported the activists on the front lines of protest and speaks about the new identity of protestors. He sees a new class of young people rising up to change systems and challenges us to follow these new leaders. Rev. Sekou will challenge our assumptions about race, about who our leaders are, and how we engage these issues. After Rev. Sekou inspires and challenges our ideas on Ferguson and the role of people of faith , our panel (including Rev. Sekou) will provide practical and Portland specific feedback. Exploring ideas such as: - The role of people of faith in the Black Lives Matter movement - How people of faith have been a support and how they have failed - How people of faith can participate in issues/projects in Portland - How young people can connect their faith and civic connection - The place of people of color in American Christianity - and dialogue on the tension and realities of these issues. Ultimately, this event is a time for folks to listen and educate themselves, to wrestle with topics, and to connect with people engaged in the work of justice. Local organizations, such as the YWCA of Greater Portland, Impact NW, The Albina Ministerial Alliance, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, City Serve Portland, and others will promote their programs and attendees will have a chance to ask questions and connect further.

Portland's Urban Native Americans: What You Need to Know to Be An Ally Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree tribe), Ph.D. Wednesdays 7-8:30 at SE Uplift, 3534 SE Main St, four weeks $60 (Space limited to 15) Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and culture of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way. Class 1 (June 10): The Context for Urban Natives of Portland: who we are, where we were, what we're doing now. Current studies estimate at least 60% of Native people live off reservation. Historically, this is no accident. Discover why it's important to understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people.

Join us at Ecotrust’s Natural Capital Center, a hub for ideas and urban community, for a unique series of free outdoor concerts on First Thursdays this Summer (7/02, 8/06, 9/05). The concerts feature outstanding local performers and street fair-style booths fostering environmental awareness and community engagement. On July 2nd the theme is climate and features Portland Cello Project. Our second concert is August 6th with the theme water and forests and features Orquestra Pacifico Tropical & Mimicking Birds. Our concert series concludes September 3rd with the theme food and will feature Horse Feathers & School of Rock. Sundown is quintessential summer in Portland – equal parts indie concert, block party, and classic Portland street fair. Each evening, the musical performances will be complemented by a street fair-style Showcase focused on a theme—climate (July), water and forests (August), and food (September). Each Showcase will feature over 40 interactive booths that connect attendees with inspiring organizations working in the Pacific Northwest to deliver inventive solutions within conservation and environmentally-responsible enterprise. For the first time the series will also line-up with First Thursdays, a 31-year-old tradition when the whole neighborhood comes to life with arts and culture. Ecotrust is inviting a host of creative performers to expand and deepen the series’ cultural engagement, from the Portland Cello Project bringing a whole evening of the famed “All Ages Dance Party” (July) to School of Rock (September). At every show, ice cream bombast and visionary Morgan Street Theatre will dish up one-of-a-kind desserts. Expect the unexpected. These family-friendly events also include the “Sundown Kid’s Corner” hosted by Metro Portland’s Kids Calendar, with art and educational activities to keep the little rockers happy. Frosty beverages and tasty local fare will be provided by Hot Lips Pizza and Laughing Planet. The series will be powered by a green power source.

Portland's Urban Native Americans: What You Need to Know to Be An Ally Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree tribe), Ph.D. Wednesdays 7-8:30 at SE Uplift, 3534 SE Main St, four weeks $60 (Space limited to 15) Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and culture of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way. Class 1 (June 10): The Context for Urban Natives of Portland: who we are, where we were, what we're doing now. Current studies estimate at least 60% of Native people live off reservation. Historically, this is no accident. Discover why it's important to understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people.

Ivanhoe "Ivan" Martin is a poor Jamaican man in search of a job. He leaves his rural home, after his grandmother dies, to live with his impoverished mother in Kingston. He meets Jose, who takes him to see a Spaghetti Western. With dreams of becoming a successful Reggae singer, a young Jamaican man finds corruption from his record producers and the drug pushers they're connected to. Rather than fail his dreams Ivan lets nothing stand in his way, not even the law. THE HARDER THEY COME Director: Perry Henzell Country: Jamaica Year: 1972 Runtime: 120 minutes KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music.

Please join Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant at a rally in Portland for her re-election campaign! Mark your calendar now! https://www.facebook.com/events/1596082527348052/ Since her election in 2013, Councilmember Sawant has electrified the opposition to the corporate agenda in the Pacific Northwest. An unapologetic fighter for working people, she refuses all corporate donations and accepts only the average worker's wage. Her re-election will prove again that it is completely possible to elect candidates who reject corporate cash. Kshama Sawant has inspired movements across the country, including in Portland, such as the $15 Now movement, by delivering on her campaign promise to make Seattle the first major city to pass a $15/hour minimum wage less than six months after she took office. Now Kshama is tackling head-on the crisis of skyrocketing rents by fighting for rent control, for a Tenants’ Bill of Rights, and for the city to build thousands of high-quality apartments rented at below-market rates. She is working to fully fund a world-class public transit system, and to implement Municipal Broadband as an alternative to the Comcast and Centurylink monopolies. As a representative of working people, Kshama does not take a penny in corporate cash. While the rest of the City Council pays themselves $120,000/year, Councilmember Sawant takes only the average worker’s wage and donates the remainder to a Solidarity Fund to help build social justice movements. As Kshama recently said on Democracy Now, "Polls show the vast majority of the U.S. is to the left of the political choices presented. It's our responsibility to fill the vacuum to the left of the Democratic Party by building a political alternative for working people." That is why corporations across the country are funding her opponents' campaigns. We in Portland absolutely need to support her historic re-election. Mark your calendar, invite your friends, and join us at this rally and fundraiser! The Old Church is located at SW 11th and Clay in downtown Portland. ADA accessible. Gender-neutral restroom on site. This event is all-ages; beer and wine available with ID The Old Church is AIR CONDITIONED. Sponsored by VoteSawant and Socialist Alternative – Portland Branch Endorsed by 15NowPDX Paid for by Vote Sawant, PO Box 85862, Seattle, WA 98145. Kshama Sawant is the first socialist elected in Seattle in over a century. Follow Vote Sawant for updates on what we are up to and how to get involved. http://kshamasawant.org/

Help us keep our Bike Fleet in good condition and working order! Each year we teach thousands of Portland 4th and 5th graders to bike safely on the street with these bikes. They need routine maintenance every month to keep the parts working smoothly. So if you’ve got mechanic skills, come join us for some greasy fun on the third Saturday of every month from 10 am to 2 pm. Directions: It's on the NE corner of NE 21st Ct. and Pacific Avenue. It's just northeast of the Sunshine Dairy, but still south of I-84. Our shop entrance is on the NW corner of that block, through the chain link fence. Please sign up if you can make it and bring your own coffee cup if you like hot coffee! Thanks to Grand Central Bakery for providing snacks for us. *Maintenance Days are usually scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of every month from 10-2pm at the Parks Building. So mark your calendars and invite a handy friend!

For more detailed information, please visit: www.stringsummit.com. The 14th Annual Northwest String Summit is hosted by Colorado-based Yonder Mountain String Band; arguably the top touring neo-bluegrass band in the world. Yonder will perform for 3 nights of music, and additional standout acts at this year's festival include 2 Nights of Greensky Bluegrass, Del McCoury Band, Del & Dawg feat. Del McCoury & David Grisman, 2 Nights of The Infamous Stringdusters, Keller Williams' Grateful Grass, Keller Williams & The Travelin' McCourys, The Greyboy Allstars (Late Night Main Stage), Nahko & Medicine For The People, Elephant Revival (2 Sets), Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Fruition (2 Nights), Rising Appalachia (2 Nights), Shook Twins, Scott Law & Larry Keel with Darol Anger, Samson Grisman and Jack Dwyer, Larry Keel, Town Mountain, Adam Aijala & Larry Keel, The California Honeydrops, Dead Winter Carpenters, Darol Anger, Shafty, Frank Fairfield, Rumpke Mountain Boys, Henhouse Prowlers, Polecat, Trout Steak Revival, Gipsy Moon, The Grant Farm, The Student Loan, Crow and the Canyon, The Good Time Travelers, Eight Dollar Mountain, Pete Kartsounes, Arthur Lee Land, Alice DiMecele, The Hill Dogs, Left Coast Country, and more acts to be announced soon!

Portland's Urban Native Americans: What You Need to Know to Be An Ally Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree tribe), Ph.D. Wednesdays 7-8:30 at SE Uplift, 3534 SE Main St, four weeks $60 (Space limited to 15) Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and culture of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way. Class 1 (June 10): The Context for Urban Natives of Portland: who we are, where we were, what we're doing now. Current studies estimate at least 60% of Native people live off reservation. Historically, this is no accident. Discover why it's important to understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people.

If you identify as female, genderqueer, gender fluid, or as a gender minority, you are welcome to join our inclusive story-gaming community for Femme Game Night events!

If you are intrigued by RPGs and/or story games, but have had your doubts about jumping into an established group or felt uncomfortable going to another organized gaming event, you are SUPER DUPER EXTRA welcome.Story games are a little bit like board games, and a lot like grown-up versions of the “let’s pretend” games you probably played as a child. Above all, they are about TELLING A STORY TOGETHER. It’s not about winning or losing, it’s not about making the best character or mastering the rules, it’s about CREATING something together and HAVING FUN. These games take no more than a few minutes to learn, play within a couple of hours, and focus on story rather than rules. Come check it out! We're always looking for more folks to help facilitate, so shoot me a message or post below if you have a game you'd like to share!Let's enjoy each others' company and play quick, easy-to-learn, story-based role playing games in a welcoming female-centered environment. The games don't usually begin until 6:30 but feel free to join us for witty banter before hand.

Portland's Urban Native Americans: What You Need to Know to Be An Ally Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree tribe), Ph.D. Wednesdays 7-8:30 at SE Uplift, 3534 SE Main St, four weeks $60 (Space limited to 15) Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and culture of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way. Class 1 (June 10): The Context for Urban Natives of Portland: who we are, where we were, what we're doing now. Current studies estimate at least 60% of Native people live off reservation. Historically, this is no accident. Discover why it's important to understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people.

They possess a kingdom which they protest and cherish. They are high esteemed, honorable and very devoted to themselves in particular! The kingdom could be anything from work to home to a partner, whatever it is, they rule it. Leo is always center stage and full of flair, they enjoy basking in the spotlight. A Leo always makes their presence known. Leo are full of energy that acts like a magnet for other people. Others are attracted to Leo's wit, charm, and what they have to say for they speak of things grand and very interesting. Leo will never settle for second best. They want only the best which can cause lavish excessive spending habits as they enjoy their life of luxury, which is all to easily justified by the grand and magnificent Leo! Public image is very important to Leo, with luxurious possessions and ways of life, this keeps the public image in high standing. They will do whatever it takes to protect their own reputation. Leos are very generous, kind and openhearted people. If a Leo is crossed, they will strike back with force but they are not one to hold a grudge, they easily forgive, forget and move on. Leos are always trying to make things right in the world, they have larger then life emotions and they need to feel like they have accomplished something at the end of the day. They react to situations with action instead of sitting back and thinking about it, they are not impulsive however because they look at the future and consider consequences of their actions.

Join us at Ecotrust’s Natural Capital Center, a hub for ideas and urban community, for a unique series of free outdoor concerts on First Thursdays this Summer (7/02, 8/06, 9/05). The concerts feature outstanding local performers and street fair-style booths fostering environmental awareness and community engagement. On July 2nd the theme is climate and features Portland Cello Project. Our second concert is August 6th with the theme water and forests and features Orquestra Pacifico Tropical & Mimicking Birds. Our concert series concludes September 3rd with the theme food and will feature Horse Feathers & School of Rock. Sundown is quintessential summer in Portland – equal parts indie concert, block party, and classic Portland street fair. Each evening, the musical performances will be complemented by a street fair-style Showcase focused on a theme—climate (July), water and forests (August), and food (September). Each Showcase will feature over 40 interactive booths that connect attendees with inspiring organizations working in the Pacific Northwest to deliver inventive solutions within conservation and environmentally-responsible enterprise. For the first time the series will also line-up with First Thursdays, a 31-year-old tradition when the whole neighborhood comes to life with arts and culture. Ecotrust is inviting a host of creative performers to expand and deepen the series’ cultural engagement, from the Portland Cello Project bringing a whole evening of the famed “All Ages Dance Party” (July) to School of Rock (September). At every show, ice cream bombast and visionary Morgan Street Theatre will dish up one-of-a-kind desserts. Expect the unexpected. These family-friendly events also include the “Sundown Kid’s Corner” hosted by Metro Portland’s Kids Calendar, with art and educational activities to keep the little rockers happy. Frosty beverages and tasty local fare will be provided by Hot Lips Pizza and Laughing Planet. The series will be powered by a green power source.

This practice helps move energy along the spine, stimulates the endocrine system, decreases stress and eliminates toxins.

It promotes positive self-esteem and forward momentum in new directions. Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) is accessible to all people, all genders, all sexual identities and orientations, all races, classes, ages, abilities, sizes, and all language backgrounds. All levels are welcome! This class is perfect for both beginners and experienced yogis who wish to add mantra and meditation to their practice. Suggested Donation $5-10.

Help us keep our Bike Fleet in good condition and working order! Each year we teach thousands of Portland 4th and 5th graders to bike safely on the street with these bikes. They need routine maintenance every month to keep the parts working smoothly. So if you’ve got mechanic skills, come join us for some greasy fun on the third Saturday of every month from 10 am to 2 pm. Directions: It's on the NE corner of NE 21st Ct. and Pacific Avenue. It's just northeast of the Sunshine Dairy, but still south of I-84. Our shop entrance is on the NW corner of that block, through the chain link fence. Please sign up if you can make it and bring your own coffee cup if you like hot coffee! Thanks to Grand Central Bakery for providing snacks for us. *Maintenance Days are usually scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of every month from 10-2pm at the Parks Building.

Welcome to a new gaming event for queer folks! No matter where you are on the LGBTQ rainbow, you’re welcome to join us for an evening of easy going story games in a safe, inclusive environment. All experience levels are welcome, from first-time gamers to seasoned storytellers and roleplayers. If you are intrigued by RPGs or story games, but have had your doubts about jumping into an established group or felt uncomfortable going to an organized gaming event, you are especially welcome. All you have to do is show up and play a game. You don't need to bring anything other than the desire to play and the willingness to try something new. Games begin at about 7pm, but feel free to show up a bit earlier to meet and chat with your fellow gamers.

Kundalini yoga uses postures, chanting and meditation to help us connect to the divine teacher within. This practice helps move energy along the spine, stimulates the endocrine system, decreases stress and eliminates toxins. Kundalini yoga can help to clear subconscious conditioning that no longer serves us. It can be helpful for those living with mental illness and addiction. It promotes positive self-esteem and forward momentum in new directions. Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) is accessible to all people, all genders, all sexual identities and orientations, all races, classes, ages, abilities, sizes, and all language backgrounds. All levels are welcome! This class is perfect for both beginners and experienced yogis who wish to add mantra and meditation to their practice. Suggested Donation $5-10. Nobody turned away for lack of funds. For more info about Kundalini yoga or this class, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/chariotoftheheartyoga

Join us at Ecotrust’s Natural Capital Center, a hub for ideas and urban community, for a unique series of free outdoor concerts on First Thursdays this Summer (7/02, 8/06, 9/05). The concerts feature outstanding local performers and street fair-style booths fostering environmental awareness and community engagement. On July 2nd the theme is climate and features Portland Cello Project. Our second concert is August 6th with the theme water and forests and features Orquestra Pacifico Tropical & Mimicking Birds. Our concert series concludes September 3rd with the theme food and will feature Horse Feathers & School of Rock. Sundown is quintessential summer in Portland – equal parts indie concert, block party, and classic Portland street fair. Each evening, the musical performances will be complemented by a street fair-style Showcase focused on a theme—climate (July), water and forests (August), and food (September). Each Showcase will feature over 40 interactive booths that connect attendees with inspiring organizations working in the Pacific Northwest to deliver inventive solutions within conservation and environmentally-responsible enterprise. For the first time the series will also line-up with First Thursdays, a 31-year-old tradition when the whole neighborhood comes to life with arts and culture. Ecotrust is inviting a host of creative performers to expand and deepen the series’ cultural engagement, from the Portland Cello Project bringing a whole evening of the famed “All Ages Dance Party” (July) to School of Rock (September). At every show, ice cream bombast and visionary Morgan Street Theatre will dish up one-of-a-kind desserts. Expect the unexpected. These family-friendly events also include the “Sundown Kid’s Corner” hosted by Metro Portland’s Kids Calendar, with art and educational activities to keep the little rockers happy. Frosty beverages and tasty local fare will be provided by Hot Lips Pizza and Laughing Planet. The series will be powered by a green power source.
